Publisher's Summary

Why are books so very powerful? The stories in this collection are about what we do with books and what they do with us: how they travel with us and shock us, change us and challenge us, banish time while making us older, wiser and ageless all at once, and how they remind us to pay attention to the world that we make.
With this brilliantly inventive collection, Ali Smith joins the campaign to save our public libraries and celebrate their true place in our culture and history.


What the Critics Say

"A brilliant, comprehensive, unpredictable defence of public libraries. You can travel anywhere on Ali Smith's library ticket." (Observer)
"Smith's world is incredibly generous - it's a place where all sorts of stories and human connections are possible." (Metro)
"[An] audacious, distinctly Smithian and hugely entertaining collection...clever, mischievous, full of linguistic tricks and tics. A passionate defence of [libraries]." (Independent)
